MUMBAI, March 1: Airbus 380, the world’s largest commercial passenger aircraft, will thunder across the city’s skies in  April. The double-deck aircraft will test the competence of Mumbai’s runways.

The European aircraft company has sent a team to India to explore the preparedness of Mumbai and Delhi airports to handle such a huge aeroplane. The source confirmed that Mumbai’s test has been fixed for April 25.

Though an airport source claimed that an A380 can land in Mumbai even today, he admitted that parking is a problem. The airport will also require additional ladders and extra vestibules for passengers.

The airport revamp plan will enable parking of two A380s, but that will only come about by 2010. Till then, it will have to be ‘remote’ parking for the super-jumbo.
